This simple baby cardigan is knit seamlessly from the bottom up with raglan shaping for the sleeves and a colourwork pattern on the body. The colourwork is a simple slip stitch pattern which only requires you to use one colour in each row.
The body and sleeves are knit separately to the underarm and then joined for the yoke and the hood to be worked. The underarms are grafted together and stitches are picked up and worked in rib to form the button band.
